Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has boasted in their ability to beat defending Premier League champions, Liverpool.
Lampard is relishing the prospect of playing Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, despite losing both encounters in 2019-20.
However, Chelsea won their FA Cup showdown and want the world to know that they have no fear in hosting the champions on Sunday.
Lampard claimed: “I am very excited. Liverpool were clearly the best team in the league last year, they won it by a long way.
“But every game we played against them we really competed well.
He recalled that his team beat Liverpool in the FA Cup, although they lost pretty narrowly in both league games where they made a really good account of themselves.
“I’m excited for us to see how the players match up against them and see where we’re at.
“We have some new players now, we are slightly short on fitness. I think our pre-season has been one of the hardest in the league.
He noted that Liverpool have been training a couple of weeks more than Chelsea, but expressed optimism that it is a great early opportunity to match up against them and see what his team can do.
“We have to be confident, we can’t fear Liverpool, we respect them, but we will believe in ourselves
